Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Schizophrenia is commonly treated with antipsychotics. This article presents a major overview of prescribing antipsychotic for the non-medical prescriber. The prescribing of first- and second generation antipsychotics is considered together with the formulation and side effects. Both the evidence-base for prescribing, and the pharmacology are considered with particular reference to side effects and patient choice.
